Maybe this is another A/B testing. I don’t know why Envato is trying a lot of testing cases this year, this makes the Market unstable. When the buyers get used to the new design, they do change to another testing case with another layout. It’s confusing everyone. Please decide to apply 1 design for the category page and keep it for a long time.
In my opinion, I suggest Envato switch back the old design with the default filter is New Item. It will solve all problems here. Look, my WordPress item has just been released at the first price only $13 for intro price. In a whole discount day (Monday), it got zero sales. This is the big problem because it’s not easy to publish an item nowadays. Author can’t live if the item got just a few sales. I think authors will not create the big themes with a lot of features at this moment. It cost too much but the income is just a penny.
